Slow Down to Speed Up: Lead, Succeed, and Thrive in a 24/7 World


Advance quotes for Liz’s work and her new book…

“Liz provides an in depth look at something we all struggle with. Finding the balance. These real-life examples provide insight into some innovative new thinking around the pragmatism of finding high impact results in the middle of changing priorities and the constant search for overall effectiveness”. — David and Esperanza Neu, Founders, Neu Center for Supportive Medicine and Cancer Survivorship

“Slowing down to speed up sounds like common sense. Why then do so many of us fail to execute on such a basic principle? Perhaps it is because we lack the tools that are necessary to make the process effective. Unlike many leadership books that utilize analogies and parables, Liz Bywater, Ph.D., provides guidance built on real-world examples, and incorporates instructive tools derived from her many years working as an executive consultant. If looking for a quick fix then this book is not for you. Because although Bywater’s work is a quick read, mastering the principle requires you to not just read, but reflect, engage, and slow down to get the most out of her advice.” — Rob Wright, Chief Editor, Life Science Leader magazine

“I have worked with Liz and greatly benefitted from her advice and the tools she has developed over a long career of advising executives. Everything Liz says seems so logical, you find yourself saying That makes sense! She creates a very easy system to get you to reflect, reprioritize, and create a vision for personal and career success. The stopping to accelerate, as Liz says, to speed up, is true in my own career. I love having these tools all in one book. Having the toolkit to put your thoughts into action is invaluable.” — Lorrie Vogel, Former VP Nike Material Science and Innovation
